As you say Scenery very nice on a cold wet night in Ruislip.
Will worry now as i walk from arrivals to Car Park.Have i Paid My Tourist Tax ??
How can you get from Palma to Alcanada and the road to La Victoria that quick ???
Over Thirty year i have tried to do the journey faster to PP but never manage it. Must hire a Bigger car
As for driving round Palma Cathedral at breakneck speed left me wondering if i could try it in my Hired Fiat Panda. Cant wait for Tuesday episode !!!!!!!

Two helpful suggestions my Noble lord
(1) Sack your chauffer and get one that's a better driver.

(2) Get the rolls royce serviced.

Halfway through and must admit it is growing on us, in a kitsch way, the acting and plots are poor, but the locations and views are fantastic, and it is getting us in the mood for a January, and anyway I loved Elderado

It isn't meant to be "highbrow " viewing. It's pure escapism, there's enough true misery on T.V and in the press ! Everything doesn't have to be true to life or deliver a message.

Quite agree. I think we are on the same hymn sheet on this one. May I refer you to my message #16?

What do you mean its not realistic. Just watched episode 2. Its starts with a group of cyclist going uphill spread across the full width of the carriageway. You can't get more true to life than that!

Don't think there's much to the storylines, but the views today were superb.

Its similar but much smaller than Pollenca. I've been to some pretty big gigs in Pollenca.

PollenÁa is much larger, doesn't have the ornate ballustrades or so many windows on the first floor, but it does have cypress trees inside at each corner and it also has a fairly substantial waist high wall running around the arches.
